Sharp NEC Display Solutions has introduced a new line of digital signage displays designed for corporate, retail and education environments who are looking for a quality, cost-conscious solution. The new Large Format MultiSync ME Series are standalone displays that offer clear, vivid UHD content.
The new ME Series displays can be mounted either in landscape or portrait orientation allowing for flexibility to create engaging and unique display formats. Built for extended 18 hours a day, seven days a week operation, these displays also contain a full scheduler that allows for programmable daily on-off times. Additionally, the ME Series was built with external control capabilities in mind by allowing full control options via both the LAN and RS232 interfaces. This allows for full compatibility with NEC NaViSet Administrator 2 software as well as other third-party control systems. With button lockout functionality and a full metal chassis, the ME Series displays are ideal for hallway signage in a higher education facility, a welcome sign in a corporate office or a scheduling board in a House of Worship, among a variety of other applications.
NEC incorporated modular capabilities into this product line by offering the ability to enhance its displays through multiple integrated professional technologies. All MultiSync ME Series displays accept the Intel Smart Display Module Small or Large through a mechanical and electrical design that allows for all-in-one intelligence and interoperability in a small form factor setting. This offers a simpler implementation of Intel processor-based PCs and other peripheral devices without having to deal with the hassles of mounting external devices or running video or audio cabling.
The ME Series also allows for the optional implementation of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 directly into each display (available Q2 2021). The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 greatly outperforms previous versions by offering gigabyte network speeds, faster CPU processing and true UHD/4K support. The ME Series begins shipping Q1 of 2021.
